North Shore Outlook nominated for 3 Ma Murray Awards
The Outlook has been nominated in three categories of the B.C.-Yukon Community Newspapers Association’s Ma Murray competition.
Editor Justin Beddall is a finalist in the arts and culture category for Architectural Road Trip, a story about the journey of a pair of filmmakers who produced the documentary Coast Modern.
In the feature photo category Outlook photographer Rob Newell got the nod for Victory Lap, his cover shot of swimmer Mike Diering (pictured at above).
Also, designer Maryann Erlam and sales representative Tracey Wait are nominated in the ad campaign collaborative category for the Viva La Natural campaign for Windsor Meat Co.
Reporter Todd Coyne and former reporter Sean Kolenko were also nominated for investigative journalism as part of a team who wrote Oil & Water, a series examining the risks, politics and logistics involved with oil tankers passing through local waters.
The B.C.-wide Ma Murray contest recognizes the best in production, publishing, reporting, editing, advertising, photography, website design and community contribution. This year nearly 2,000 entries were submitted to the competition.
Winners will be announced on April 20 at the River Rock Casino Resort.
